see placid cam's music to hear an integration of those orchestral samples into a musical snack.
The phrases library includes thousands of phrases and articulations played on orchestral instruments.
The samples have all been recorded by Philharmonia Orchestra players and are free to download and use, but please note:
You can use the samples to create any kind of musical composition, you can even share them with other people, but you cannot sell them. In other words, you have the right to use them, but they are not for re-sale.
This means that the samples are free to use for creative musical purposes. Even if you use them to create a No.1 selling CD (in fact we hope you do), we will not make any charges or any claim for royalties. As long as you have made creative musical use of the samples you can do as you wish: we only insist that the original samples must not be sold to anyone. NB Simply changing the samples into another file format (eg from mp3 into wav) does not constitute 'creative musical use' and will not give you the right to sell a sample.

Much thanks for all the hard work involved in this detailed cataloging of your instruments! I like to use a format called "Soundfonts" which assign the keys of a MIDI keyboard to the various chromatic pitches. This will be an interestihg project indeed!
